Hi, I have had a sore throat, swollen glands and stiff neck for about 10 days. I've also developed a cough in the last few days. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and started antibiotics on Wednesday and there has been no change. I am having trouble swallowing and today have noticed that the roof of my mouth is swollen. Should I be worried?

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Have you consulted an ENT specialist or a General practitioner?

As you are taking antibiotics since Wednesday, but there is no improvement, rather you have developed swelling of roof of mouth also, you should consult an ENT specialist at your earliest.
